About NCHH

The National Center for Healthy Housing was founded in October 1992 (as the National Center for Lead-Safe Housing), to bring the public health, housing, and environmental communities together to combat our nation’s epidemic of childhood lead poisoning. Today, NCHH’s mission is to secure safe and healthy housing for all. NCHH conducts research on methods to assess hazards in the home and on measures to reduce those hazards. NCHH designs practical strategies to incorporate healthy housing practices into the work of the public health and affordable housing communities. NCHH promotes these strategies through education and outreach, partnership programs, and governmental initiatives.

NCHH offers a rewarding work environment for individuals interested in science, policy, and the transformation of communities. NCHH’s staff of 11 is comprised of seasoned professionals with experience in environmental health, public health, housing, policy, industrial hygiene, engineering, and marketing. The diversity of staff backgrounds and expertise offers excellent opportunities for peer learning, personal growth, and development. EOE.
